Security and Intelligence Agencies: Contingencies Fund Advance

Volume 594: debated on Tuesday 24 March 2015

My statement of 17 March informed Parliament of the intention to access £66,800,000 from the contingency fund pending parliamentary approval of the supply estimates 2014-15. Royal Assent of the Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill has been further delayed therefore the Security and Intelligence Agencies are seeking an additional advance of £42,900,000.

As the Security and Intelligence Agencies are non-ministerial departments, I am making this statement on behalf of their Accounting Officer, to ensure that Parliament is informed of this advance from the Contingencies Fund.
